THE SKANNER ENDORSEMENTS: Multnomah County, Portland Voters Consider Campaign Finance Limits, Universal Preschool, Psilocybin
Measure 107: Campaign Finance Limits Amendment
The measure would change Oregon’s status as one of five states with no limits on campaign contributions by authorizing the state legislature and local governments to limit campaign contributions and political expenditures. The measure would also require political advertisements to disclose who paid for them, which is currently optional under Oregon law.
“Voters have always supported setting limits on campaign contributions. That’s true across political party affiliation,” Kate Titus of Common Cause Oregon testified in support of the measure. “Oregon is one of only five states that sets no limits at all on campaign contributions, has among the most expensive campaigns per capita, and ranks worst in the country for corporate cash to lawmakers.”
